the roads were filled with patriotic scoundrels demanding perpetual war which could never be funded by a low wage stamp economy. in the heart of downtown trickle we're just moments ago a suicide bomb went off right here on this street we report from iraq where hundreds of civilians have been killed this month the sunni insurgents ravaged through the country and authorities lose control. plus big business revolt american companies trying to push back white house plans to further sanctions on russia concerned they'll be locked down out of the country's markets and american neighborhoods as rules earns the increased deployment of swat teams and civil rights groups slamming the unit's aggressive military tactics.
i welcome it's nice to have you company you're watching international. now the u.n. says nine hundred civilians have been killed in iraq since the beginning of this month when the islamic militant group isis started its advance recently they attacked one of the country's largest databases and seize control of several oil fields and in the contested city of co a suicide bomber left six people dead you see cuff milf witnessed be off the mosque. or in the heart of downtown cure cooper just moments ago a suicide bomb went off right here on this street now the details so far are barkeep but what we've heard from officials is that one man a suicide bomber was seen on the street wearing an explosive device as this he was actually aiming for the building down there it's a kurdish political party office apparently authorities had seen him they tried to
intercept him and that is when he detonated his device now if you look around chaos this is late on a wednesday evening rush hour a lot of people in the streets. the car here completely destroyed this building also you can see there's down manch in the upper floors this must have been an incredibly powerful blast now if we walk the way we think this this blast really did happen so recently that they haven't had a moment to clean up the blood right here we don't know if this is. ok you probably get with. brooke. we're not exactly sure what's happening there some kind of a solution right now you can see there is kurdish authorities here trying to keep calm but again of this just took place now the background to all of this very hotly contested city that there are kurds arabs the sunnis shias christians turkmen this is a very violent city that has seen it many explosions many of clashes over the years
since the isis the islamic state in iraq and syria militants made their push in northern iraq the iraqi army have essentially fled from these areas of the. the kurds to come in and take control a lot of people in the city are not happy about that and we're not sure whether this attack was retribution perhaps for the kurds we are starting their control over this territory if you want to claim this as their historic and cultural how little they. are. it's really not safe to be here are the authorities have been shooting their weapons into the air we're not sure what's going on but we're going to get out of here before any other tension erupts there hasn't even been a chance to verify the casualties verify exactly what was the target but we do believe that it was the kurdish political office yesterday we had a chance to speak with the governor of the province he said that this is a very very calm city that there haven't been problems with the at taps that security was actually getting better and one of the things that is very clear here
from what we've seen today that that's far from the case the sea captain know. how to use continue to push through iraq because no part of society unaffected you know i was seeing footage apparently showing children joining the ranks of isis young boys is seen holding automatic rifles here while traveling with a convoy of rebels human rights watch claims that in syria isis fighters are already recruiting children snipers but their role in iraq has not been confirmed. by the u.s. has an official request from baghdad to launch air strikes in iraq but isis supporters have threatened to avenge any strike with attacks on americans you can get the details on this story as well as live updates on the ongoing crisis in iraq at r.t. dot com. now america's top business lobbies are ready to launch an ad campaign to stop the u.s.
from slapping a fresh round of sanctions on russia washington's allies in europe echoing the threats but while the measures are designed to damage russia's economy they're also sending shivers through american companies artie's marina ports has this report. as the u.s. and its western allies consider a third round of economic sanctions against russia the two biggest u.s. business organizations are warning that the move would long lasting damage to america's economy the u.s. chamber of commerce and the national association of manufacturers reportedly plan to run advertisements in the new york times the washington post and the wall street journal saying the only effect of additional sanctions would be to bar u.s. companies from foreign markets and business opportunities to firms from other countries u.s. companies fear that even temporary targeted sanctions against russia would damage their export markets and poison relations with russian customers business leaders
say potential restrictions on technology transfers would also harm u.s. energy companies that do business in russia this is precisely what moscow warned of back in march when foreign minister lavrov said any sanctions imposed on russia would come back to hurt the united states the white house told bloomberg news that the obama administration has had frequent conversations with business leaders on the issue and understands their concerns but that the u.s. can't just go on with business as usual now the obama administration is threatening to impose more sanctions on russia despite its recent steps to deescalate the crisis in ukraine at the request of president vladimir putin russian lawmakers voted tuesday to revoke legislation allowing for the use of military forces in ukraine however it seems the white house is still expecting and demanding more from moscow. washington d.c. . american companies risk losing
a chunk of imports from russia these are the top three things they by the possibility of being cut off from russia's markets is also worrying america's business leaders u.s. energy giant exxon mobil has a nine hundred billion dollar deal with russia's ross neath hanging in the balance and six hundred million already invested j.p. morgan must also be holding its breath as the u.s. threatens to target the financial sector returned fifty six million dollars in investment banking fees in russia last year technology firm intel is also a keen investor spent around a billion dollars in russia over the last twenty years while the next set of sanctions could target russia's energy sector but that could also be a big blow to u.s. and european energy giants who have a lot of interest in russia some energy bosses were spotted at the latest petroleum congress in moscow where here is the c.e.o. of exxon mobil rex tillerson bob dudley was also there he's the head of british
petroleum as was the boss of norwegian oil giant stat or a many who were there also said that they wanted to keep politics away from business but this is really going to work. it's developing. according to the conference we don't believe this kind of problems we want these some in the u.s. business community even fear a temporary sanctions could end up in long lasting damage for their russian exports economic expert from the university of massachusetts richard wolfe says american companies have good reason to be worried. the united states has direct an interest in direct investments in russia it has made plans to get access to russian energy it has made plans to get financial benefits by banking deals between russian banking and financial officials and americans and if it is
russia there's a reaction against pressure from the united states then there are ways in which all kinds of companies in the united states will suffer losses we don't know how bad they'll be if we don't know how long they'll last but we haven't a global capitalist crisis right now and companies are very worried even about relatively small threats to their ability to function and that's particularly true with financial interests which is where the tensions with russia could have some effect. meanwhile ukraine's military has apparently been dealing with a false alert over a russian invasion the speaker of the country's parliament admitted that ukrainian intelligence had put the army on standby to fight russian invaders ten times last month he recalled sitting in the command post full readiness every time but as we know the invasion never happened so it looks like ukraine's intelligence service had made mistakes in their predictions at least ten times and that could also
appear in parroting from washington that's been hugely relying on sources in kiev risk assessment of the situation. they just figures show the u.s. economy has suffered its worst performance of five years but unexpected help was quick to come in just a few minutes time see how the chinese billionaire is doing his bit to help the worst affected offering a fine dinner to new york's homeless people i'm promising to give each of them three hundred dollars. increase us police brutality towards the public again in ground a report by the american civil liberties union has revealed that seven people were killed and forty six injured as a result of swat operations over the last four years the teams that were designed to act in emergency situations beyond the capabilities of ordinary police have now developed into something different.
eighty percent of the humans were raids on private homes hunting suspected criminals mostly drug data is less than ten percent of operations dealt with riots hostage taking another shooting scenarios which the department was initially created to deal with. and this nineteen month old baby is the youngest victim of the brutal tactics the squad burst into the boy's room and unwittingly threw a grenade into his car he's now in a medically induced coma fighting for his life the family spokesperson told anita now in more about the tragedy on in the night. this flash grenade was tossed into a room with four small children the tragedy of course was that it ended in the plague. but it was four small children that were living in this space where this explosive device was thrown there have been reports that there was no
way to know that there were young children in this household so that is totally false what this raid and the situation with the family that you're representing say about the american police system about militarization who exactly are they arming up against we find statistically people of color people in low income areas and communities get a deal with this kind of blunt force if you're in any influential community or if you have any influence personally you tend to get a knock at the door or you've been a courtesy call same surrender. well the drugs which the swat team is searching for were never found the boy's parents are now demanding a federal investigation into what happened to their son who's not alone by the way a trickle will soon you can see here was holding her one year old baby but that didn't stop the police who opened fire after entering her house the baby was injured but survived the woman wasn't even a suspect and it was her boyfriend the police were all were after on suspicion of
selling drugs and you restamp hear a sixty eight year old grandfather of twelve lay face down on the floor following orders when officers gun discharged and shot him in the head and again he wasn't a suspect and police were searching for his girlfriend's son a suspected drug dealer he was by the way detained minutes before swat broke into mr stamps home. we've got more news for you lined up after a quick break including hiding hate behind style later we report from germany on how far right movements are using image to gain even more popularity. so we leave the. bush and. your party is it.

war. welcome to the kaiser report imax kaiser you know general macarthur once said americans never quit that was when there was something worth fighting for before a fraud was the only way of life posed a gold standard abandonment and bankruptcy before the population grew morbidly obese down in bargain cans of processed food bought at the company's store wal-mart
where their food stamps what the furthest before the arrows were filled with patriotic scoundrels demanding perpetual war which can never be funded by a low wage high food stamp economy and now those americans who are abandoning ship like never before. yes max we've heard repeatedly of these americans who are fleeing america announcing citizenship but also corporations now american corporations are fleeing at the fastest rate ever the rush of firms fleeing america for tax reasons set to continue america is the land of immigrants but some of the biggest companies are keen to emigrate different abroad by high tax rates and america's worldwide system of taxation which grabs a share of their corporate profits the preferred method of exit is the tax inversion which uses a cross border merger generally one that also has some sort of industrial logic as a pretext for incorporating in
a more tax friendly place the biggest firms to do this are health care and energy firms right right right right some some some kind of commercial logic attached to it they try to cloak what is obviously a tax dodge under some kind of commercial logic of course there was two major drug companies here in the u.k. involve u.s. u.k. involved recently pfizer nash's anak i am fives are the male imposed drug manufacturer erectile disfunction thats it. and astra zeneca yes who was the suitor who was the. obviously pfizer is an american corporation astra zeneca is a british corporation so it was seeking reasons that they are like the queen yeah and pfizer was like that man so they've got the erectile dysfunction drug going after the queen and the running around buck couse and the queen saying no no put that thing back in your trousers we're not going to allow this tax avoidance merger although i don't know why she would be against it didn't she just.
